By Rick Miranda

During this ebook, Miranda takes the method that algebraic curves are top encountered for the 1st time over the advanced numbers, the place the reader's classical instinct approximately surfaces, integration, and different suggestions could be introduced into play. for that reason, many examples of algebraic curves are offered within the first chapters. during this method, the booklet starts as a primer on Riemann surfaces, with complicated charts and meromorphic features taking heart level. however the major examples come from projective curves, and slowly yet absolutely the textual content strikes towards the algebraic type. Proofs of the Riemann-Roch and Serre Duality Theorems are offered in an algebraic demeanour, through an model of the adelic evidence, expressed thoroughly by way of fixing a Mittag-Leffler challenge. Sheaves and cohomology are brought as a unifying equipment within the latter chapters, in order that their software and naturalness are instantly visible. Requiring a history of a one semester of advanced variable! conception and a 12 months of summary algebra, this is often an outstanding graduate textbook for a second-semester path in complicated variables or a year-long direction in algebraic geometry.

Within the first quantity of this survey (Arnol'd et al. (1988), hereafter brought up as "EMS 6") we familiar the reader with the elemental suggestions and techniques of the speculation of singularities of soft mappings and capabilities. This idea has quite a few purposes in arithmetic and physics; the following we commence describing those applica tions.
